    Did you select the Ender 3 Pro or the Ender 3 as printer when installing Cura? The restricted areas on the Ender 3 profile are a little bigger as on an Ender 3 Pro!

    It should be possible to print something that is 205mm in the 220x220 buildplate-setting of the Ender 3 (Pro).


    Sometimes options in Cura are of influence of what can be printed and what can not be printed, one of these options is "Build Plate Adhesion - SKIRT".
